Submitting VAT data via electronic systems was postponed from April this year to January 2013 by action of Slovakia’s parliament on February 29, the TASR newswire wrote.

“It was due to the huge problems involving the introduction of the [new] information system,” said Smer MP Jozef Burian about the problems being experience by Slovakia’s new Financial Administration.

The parliament was briefly scheduled to discuss the situation within the Financial Administration but Smer caucus leader Pavol Paška, who had proposed the item on the agenda, withdrew the proposal after the legislation authorising the delay was passed.

The one-day extraordinary parliamentary session then ended and parliament is not expected to meet again until after the March 10 general election.
